One of the main squares of Barcelona and a significant transportation hub. It is an ideal place for people watching. Live musical performances also take place here.
When passing the square, do not overlook its beautiful fountains and statues. There is a monument honouring Francesc Macià i Llussà, who fought for the independence of Catalonia and then served as the president of the Generalitat of Catalonia between 1932 and 1933. Also, a statue of a female figure by Josep Clara called La Deessa is located here.
The square is also surrounded by shops, including Corte Inglés, a large Spanish department store.
